It has been a while since we have shown you a good Russian video of someone doing something completely insane and getting away with it. In this case we find ourselves at a huge Russian sawmill in the dead of winter. There’s a guy on a forklift kind of ramming it into a massive pile of trees that have been cut to a specific length. We’re not sure if these are going to be milled into boards of what is going to happen next but clearly this guy’s job is to get them inside the building in some sort of controlled manner.
So he drastically fails on the controlled manner part of the equation when he decides to “fix” an issue he is having with a bundle of these logs. The driver places the forklift against the pile and them proceeds to cut the wire that holds his bail of logs together. He snips and runs for this life which was a good move because what follows is a horrifying torrent of frozen logs and rushes forth like a tidal wave, sweeping the fork truck and everything else with it.
Amazingly no one is hurt in the incident and while the description says that the boss was very angry, we kind of doubt it. This was probably the fourth time it happened that morning, right?
